Take Care

We all love Singapore. And in times like this when we are all obsessed with work and other material things,
how can we make a change in Singapore that can help people live better, healthier and lead more meaningful lives?

As our everyday lives become more stressful, and we start to realize that 24 hours a day is no longer enough,
it is time to be creative and make the complicated simple. Finding the balance between work and personal time,
physical and emotional well-being amongst other things are becoming more of a chore for many of us.

Personally, the few years after I graduated from school has whizzed by me in a flash.
All of my friends around me were all caught up in rat races that never seem to end
and doesn’t seem to be taking us anywhere. Everyday is work, and more work.
And apart from dictating our own future paths, we still have to take care of other things in our lives –
Am I making enough to give my parents a good life after they retire?
Will I be able to save enough to set up my own family? Am I getting enough exercise?
When was the last time I had a dental checkup?

If you are also one of those caught up in the rat race, hoping someone would come rescue you,
then the new ‘+’ Project by Philips is definitely here at the right time.

The ‘+’ Project by Philips is a campaign that encourages people to improve their health
and well-being by creating sustainable cities and allow people to have better access to healthcare.

As part of this campaign, they would like to invite you to share your idea of what is the best way to promote health
and well-being in Singapore and to know what matters to most people living in Singapore.
Their website is a really informative place where you can find out more about
some of the current problems Singapore might be facing and how we can overcome them.
Pretty interesting read, I must say!

And the survey page is even cuter!

Look! The introduction page is really adorable too!

The survey will only take about 5 to 10 mins to complete and it doesn’t even feel that long
because the animation is so pretty! The questions are things that are close to heart
about our society, family, work, health and more.
Here is one of the questions I encountered in the survey:

At the end of the survey, you will also be asked to vote for an idea or movement you most support!
Choose the one that you can relate to most and they will try to make it happen! 🙂

At the end of the survey, you will also get an idea of how satisfied with your personal health and well-being.
Hmm! I’m apparently not very satisfied. :/

The best thing is, as you share your ideas and find out more about where you stand with regards to health
and well-being in Singapore, you will also be rewarded for sharing your thoughts!
There are weekly prizes and grand prizes worth $10,000 up for grabs!

  6. Hi Peggy

    This post made me teared so much….but it was all happy and joyful tears.
    I am so happy that someone like you, another person on earth has shown to their love ones that love is not all about gender. Love is all about giving while receiving.

    But by doing this, your love ones are the most courageous ones cos by accepting who you are (we are), they are already giving you all their love they have for you.

    Wish you & love ones always happy & stronger in all. =)
